Default Folders

I would like to be able to set different default folders for: Load Pictures; Save Layout (work in progress); and Rendered Files (finished product).

I'm running Morpheus Animation Suite.

I believe that the Windows usability guidelines dictate that programs must start up with the "My Documents" folder as the default for all open/save dialogs.

The default folder can be changed by loading a layout file by double-clicking on it from Explorer. The program will then start up with the folder containing that .aml file as the default.

Also, you can set the file to be rendered in the Timeline Options such that it always renders to the same folder+file, which will allow you to not have to change into that folder each time you render an animation.

Thanks for the speedy and informative reply Ark.

I will definitely give that a try, and let you know the outcome.

That didn't accomplish what I was after. If the file wasn't listed in the "Recent Files" list, default reverted to "My Documents".

Thanks for the try.
